Good morning all, I hope the day finds you well....

They closed out yesterday with a pretty good showing. However like the day before it, there was a time or two where the DOW wasn't far away from going red. That shows us that as much as they're still deploying new money in areas, there are people heading for the exits. It will be interesting to see who wins in the longer term. 

1.4.2017 Some Issues We Face Bookmark

Hi everyone, the newest free investing newsletter is posted here on the site. In this issue, I talk about a couple things that no matter who would be in the White House, they'd have to face. One of them is the rise of the robots. Automation is not going to stop and it is going to continue to take jobs away. What happens when 50% or more of the jobs are done by machines?  What do YOU do for a living?  

Then we poke a few sticks in the over Nanny state regulations we face. If you've ever tried to open a small business you know how bad they are. This week I stole a quote from a woman in New Town portion of Sarasota. It's stunning brilliant in its simplicity. I think you should check it out.

Mornin' all, welcome to another day. 

One thing that has always kept me in the game here is that each day brings new absurdities to chat about.  It's pretty darned rare when I snuggle down into my office chair, and I'm not instantly slammed with some headline that is either amusing, infuriating, or blatantly false. I guess that's what drives me to try and connect the dots in this crazy world.

Hello folks, we've made it to Friday and the "jobs" report. 

Yesterday I mentioned the idea that they HAD to keep the S&P over 2190 because the optics of the market falling below the summer highs wouldn't be good.  So, after reaching down to 2187...they came in during the last hour and saved the day. We closed out at 2191.  That's a desperation type move folks. Consider what happened yesterday....

September Slam?
 
NOTE>> Today is the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  There will be solemn observances of this event going on all across America. By all means, take your moments to pay homage to the thousands of people who were killed, and the tens of thousands that mourn the loss of their loved ones. The criminals will be outted one day...but for today, just pray for those in pain.

Good morning all, welcome to Friday.

The last 12 hours has been driving us nuts down here. Both the power and our cable systems have been up and down like a yo yo as the feeder bands from Hermine continue to beat on us. I appreciate all the email I got wishing us well, and truth be told...while this has been pretty bad, in the big picture we got lucky here. Just 40 - 50 miles north of us, those poor folks really got walloped

Cramer Sees the Light?
 
200 Billion A Month

That’s the amount of QE being done by Central banks around the world. Chew on that for a minute, because I’m going to take you on a little tour in a minute. So, every 5 months, 1 Trillion dollars comes sloshing into the worlds markets. Some of it is used to buy things like Treasury bonds, Sovereign bonds, and even short term notes. But a lot of it is used for something much more “interesting.

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday. However it's Jobs Friday and we have to get past that.

Yesterday was a low volume, boring session that basically just existed to keep the market flat ahead of today's jobs. However, like many days lately...as the big averages didn't do much, there was movement inside the averages.

So, Friday was “jobs” day. The first Friday of every month brings us the “non farm payroll report”.  This piece of data is watched by every market participant, because the labor data is correlated to monetary policy such as interest rates.

 

The Fed’s have been sitting on their pedestal telling us how wonderful the recovery is and that the labor markets are so hot that they’re worried about overheating. For months now they’ve had a smug attitude about how many jobs there are, and that their monetary policy has indeed saved the world.

Morning all, we've made it to jobs Friday. 

Since I got up this morning the futures have been inching higher. From slightly red at 5:45 to up 1.5, they've pulled the S&P up.  Around the globe most markets are slightly in the green.  

So the big question of the day is this... there's a two day Fed meeting on the 14th and 15th. Is this jobs report going to be instrumental in their decision?
